If you are unable to attend the final live auction event on September 26th and would like to leave a ‘left bid’, click here.
This project is an invitation to explore Oxford and its unique shops and restaurants, while allowing OBA to give back. Since it’s beginning, OBA has supported area charities and nonprofits, and this year there are ten partner organizations on this project. Each is represented by an artist and the auction proceeds for each fence will go to the represented organization.
COVID-19 has made it necessary to adjust plans, and the auction has moved online and outside. Now, more than ever these charities and nonprofit organizations need support from the community. Online bidding will continue until September 25th . The fences will then move to the Oxford Community Center for an outdoor display and live auction (with social distancing and masks) to close out the project on September 26th. Anyone unable to attend will also be able to leave a proxy ‘left-bid’ on the website.
This year participating artists, and the organization that will receive the proceeds of their fences sale are: Sally Fronk – CASA of the Mid-Shore; Louisa Zendt – Chesapeake Multi-Cultural Center; Kevin Garber – For All Seasons Behavior Health and Rape Crisis Center; Kate Huntington – John Wesley Preservation Society; Cid Collins-Walker – Oxford Community Center; Marie Davis – Oxford Garden Club; Louisa Zendt – Oxford Museum; Maggii Sarfaty – Shore Rivers; Mark Montoya – Talbot Humane Society; Lisa Wendig – Tred Avon Jr. Sailing.
